Prelate Welcomes Goguikian Foundation Executive Director

On Wednesday, February 26, 2014, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, welcomed the visit of Goguikian Foundation Executive Director Mrs. Soheila Hayek, who is currently in the U.S. to promote the Foundation’s mission.

Ms. Hayek reported that the Goguikian Foundation is a non-profit, apolitical foundation established in 2008 in Lebanon by Michel Goguikian, son of the late ambassador Jean Goguikian, with a mission to encourage young Lebanese Armenians to participate in the public sector by offering scholarships, financial aid, and classes.  Lebanese citizens continue to face daily struggles such as water shortages, electricity outages, and general poverty, said Ms. Hayek, and so the Goguikian Foundation aims to improve the daily lives and overall standard of living of Lebanese citizens by encouraging the youth to enter the public sector and bring about positive changes for the country.

The Prelate welcomed Ms. Hayek and conveyed his well wishes to Mr. Goguikian, who was unable to participate in the visit.  Acknowledging that youth involvement is vital to a nation’s future, His Eminence commended the Foundation’s endeavors and wished them success in their important mission.
